Born and raised in San Diego, California, at the age of twenty-one, Tristan is following his dream of being a designer and artist in the world of fashion in Los Angeles, CA.

Tristan attends USC as creative and graphic designer and will be graduating later this year. He’s also studying at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, pursuing a masters in fashion design . Through his passions of surfing and fashion, he’s been able to find inspiration and has launched his own clothing label Curious Tristan (@curioustristan).

As he puts it, “I have always been a creative, taking on many art forms, but for the past year I have been compelled by fashion design.”

For Tristan, a better world means being a surfer and an environmentalist. Through his connection with surfing, he’s been able to appreciate nature and all of its beauties but also understands the importance of being a responsible and conscious human being of the world.  

Greenpacha has teamed up with Tristan to create a collaboration of unique hats, hand painted by him, made to inspire others.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
